Half Broke Horses by Jeannette Walls

4 Stars

A follow-up to The Glass Castle - Jeannette Walls now writes the story of her maternal grandmother. 

This book sucked me in really quickly, but unfortunately only for about half of the novel and then the pace slowed considerably.  While very well-written and a solidly GOOD book, it didn't have the power of The Glass Castle and didn't even come close to being as fascinating.  In the end, I found myself a little empty and still needing to hear the story from Rosemary's perspective rather than her mother's.  What happened to make Rosemary the way she was????  Mental disorder?  Horrible mistreatment that she has blocked out?  What????????
